Jigsaw Pieces Swap

Hi Everyone-hope you are ready for another crafty day.

Just had to show you this :-

Janet bought 3 children's jigsaws with 9 pieces in each and she worked out a way so that each of us did 3 pieces from each jigsaw and none of the pieces we made were next to each other in the completed puzzle--how amazing was that for a start. Each piece in each jigsaw was assigned a subject and we had to decorate the piece on that theme. It was brilliant having 9 different themes and knowing that eventually all of us would have a very unique piece of artwork.
this was my puzzle before and they were all different

These are the backs of the puzzle that Janet had marked out so we knew which pieces we should make-we had to decorate the other side of the pieces.

 This is my jigsaw finished and ready to frame.  Sandra and Janet are going to show theirs as well so do pop along to see them.

I made the top right, middle and bottom left
Janet made top left, right middle and centre bottom
Sandra made top middle, left centre and bottom right.

This is one of the nicest swaps I have ever been in and now I have a wonderful piece of mixed art to hang on the wall and the friendship that went into making it as well.

Love Chrissie xx
